Constipation

Constipation is a condition in which a person experiences difficult defecation or a change in normal bowel habits, characterized by a decrease in frequency and/or passage of hard, dry stools. Constipation can be caused by a variety of factors, including lack of fiber and water in the diet. Individuals experiencing chronic constipation should seek a comprehensive medical examination to rule out other serious bowel diseases.
